Waltzingmouse Stamps January Blog Party - Sweet Things
On the 17th of every month Waltzingmouse Stamps hosts a blog party - this month it's all about "Sweet Things" - just in time for Valentine's right? I've had my eye on these little wooden boxes you can find at Michael's for a while. They are very inexpensive - around $2. I wanted to do something special for the blog party so I took the plunge and bought one. I gave it a quick coat of gesso and covered it in sweet Martha Stewart Valentine's paper.
To make it even more like a party I added a rosette wand with a streamer of little hearts. Save some money - make your own rosette without a die - just cut a 2" strip of 12" paper, score it every 1/4" for folding. I ran mine through a Fiskars border punch to give it a fancy edge, zig zag folded it, and attached the two ends. Use a hot glue gun to attach a small circle on both sides for some stability and you're good to go. Easy Peasy!
What could make this box any sweeter than this you ask? I say CHOCOLATE!!! I'm planning on giving this one to my mom to brighten her day - she's been a little down lately. This will let her know I'm thinking about her and satisfy her sweet tooth at the same time!
Thanks for taking a peek - Have a great day!
